The February 13 meeting featured Darlene Roberts. Darlene has an extensive background in many areas of the world of sewing. She began with sewing clothing then moved into heirloom sewing. It wasn’t until early 2002 that she fell in love with the art of quilting. Remembering her great-aunt's loom that hung from the ceiling she knew quilting by machine was the route for her. Having designed patterns for a national fabric/ design company and teaching locally as well as nationally, Darlene now has her own Longarm business, teaches thread sketching/ painting, landscape, basic piecing classes as well as hand guiding on the longarm to new owners locally and nationally.
